Albert Porter


What has happened to Albert Porter?

He’s around. Talked to him last week.
I like Albert- straight shooter and a character. 
Since I moved to Texas, I've been 'fixin' to visit with him-- we are a few hours apart. 
He still sells stuff on here all the time too.
" around ", sort of. He no longer participates in Audiogon discussions, who can say why.
Thanks- Yes, I too used to participate, and he did too, frequently. Did a quick search today, and couldn't find any posts. I understand. Audiogon isn't what it once was. Sad.
Nothing quite is, as far as eyes can see.
Post on his system page and Albert will likely respond. I think he's less inclined to the more general philosophical stuff (my guess) but more than willing to speak concretely about what he is doing. 
Besides, there is not much to discuss left, especially for someone who is very experienced long time no-nonsense audiophile with top level system. 
I miss Albert's posts, here on Audiogon.
He is out there on other sites.
I have done business with Albert lately - as always a terrific experience.

Alot of people have moved on or lost interest in Agon but a new crop has come onboard like most sites.  I have been lurking around here since 2000 and don’t post nearly as much but still visit often.  I try to only contribute when I know what I am talking about and these days I find I know less than I used to.  
This is neither a reflection on Albert, nor of this site. Sites change as members shift interest, new members join and the topics change to a degree as the "technology" changes. I’ve seen this on some of the car boards on which I used to participate. Some of it is a reflection of a "healthy" forum that is keeping pace with topics of interest to the readership. For example, I would bet there’s much more discussion now than there was 10 years ago of DACs, and digital taken to a serious level than there used to be (perhaps I’m wrong and this is a reflection of my own biases since I’ve only recently ’evolved’ into using digital more seriously). And there does seem to be a raft of new members here who are very active and contribute. I think that's good. 
As to Albert, write to him and say hello! He’s still very active in the hobby. I’m not sure he has time to post on other fora- I don’t see him elsewhere on the web but I can’t speak for him- ask him!
Exactly right whart - well said.  Your point about technology is also spot on - I am strictly vinyl and do not know the first thing about digital.  Although I am learning on this and other sites. 

My player isn’t even hooked up currently and when it is, because I have loads of CD’s, it is Meridian from the dark ages!  Delta Sigma baby!
Recently had some conversations with him. Altogether great guy and a good person to do business with.
I had dinner with Albert last night. He is encyclopedic on analog. I asked him to help me because I'm considering adding analog to my system. It was a lot of fun and I learned a great deal. If you want an honest answer, then ask Albert.
